When I was broke and struggling in Manhattan, if I ever had 12 bucks left over at the end of any given month, I’d use it to get a manicure. Getting your nails done is one of life’s simple pleasures — a fun, small-scale way to feel pretty. Problem is, two days later (if not on the way out of the salon) what was once a gorgeous paint job gets chipped or smudged, and that looks worse than not having your nails painted at all. It’s a vicious, expensive cycle.
When a coworker of mine told me about the CND Shellac manicure — a mani that is supposed to last for at least two weeks — and proudly held hers up for me to inspect, I had to try it for myself.
